and beat Rudi's throw to the plate and the
scoreboard read: Detroit 1, California 0.
AFTER LEFLORE was already in the dugout,
however, the Angels appealed that the Tiger center-
fielder took off from third too early. The umps
upheld the appeal to erase the Tiger tally, much to
the dismay of the crowd.
Wilcox pitched well despite allowing 11 hits, many
of which were infield safeties or bloop singles. The
Tiger starter twice retired slugger Don Baylor with
the bases loaded in the middle innings to end the
Angels' best threats.
Meanwhile, the Tigers spent most of the first in-
nings guessing fastball and instead whiffing at
Tanana changeups and slow curves.
The scoreboard operator finally got some action
in the seventh when Baylor connected for a clutch
hit, doubling home Rick Miller to give the Angels a
1-0 lead.
THE TIGERS, however, after looking so feeble
against Tanana with just three hits in six innings,
came through with two runs of their own in the last
of the seventh, thanks to rookie catcher Lance
Parrish's seventh home run of the year. The big
blow was a fly ball down the left field line that drop-

ped in the first row. Jason Thompson, who had
singled, scored ahead of Parrish to give Detroit a 2-1
lead.
Wilcox couldn't hold the lead in the humid
weather though as he immediately gave up a line
drive homer to Angel backstop Downing leading off
the eighth. After Tanana put out a Tiger rally in the
last of the eighth, reliever Dave LaRoche came in to
start the ninth and quell another Detroit uprising.
LaRoche retired Steve Kemp and Parrish with pin-
ch runner Lou Whitaker in scoring position to send
the game into extra innings.
In, the eleventh the Angels broke through for two
runs off Young. Third baseman Carney Lansford
doubled off the wall in left and scored on Lyman
Bostock's line drive single that ticked the glove of
Detroit second baseman Steve Dillard. Bostock
later scored to make it 4-2 by coming around on
Downing's third hit of the night, a single to center
Still the Tigers weren't dead, as leadoff walks to
LeFlore and John Wockenfuss and a sweet sacrifice
bunt by Whitaker put men at second and third with
one out. But LaRoche gathered all his remaining
energy and retired Thompson on strikes and Kemp
on a flyout to nick up his seventh win.

stepped in and told Fox the clubhouse was reserved for players and that he
shouldn't be there.
According to the CP, Fox then swung at Rogers, hitting him in the face,
called him "yellow" and challenged him to further fisticuffs. Others stepped
in and stopped the episode.
Speier, who later hit for the cycle and drove in six runs in Montreal's 6-3
victory, volunteered after a routine post-game interview that "there wa a
motivating factor tonight that I don't want to talk about."
Reggie can't win
NEW YORK (AP)-Baseball fans responding to a newspaper telephone
poll strongly supported New York Yankee Manager Billy Martin in his long
feud with slugger Reggie Jackson.
Of the 25,458 phone calls recorded in the day-long poll conducted by the
New York Post, 15,052 or 59 percent backed Martin while the remainder,
10,406 or 41 percent, voted for Jackson.
Knocked dead
ROME (UPI)-Italian middleweight boxer Angelo Jacopucci, 29, died
yesterday after being knocked out by Britain's Alan Minterin a European
middleweight title fight, bringing to five the number of men to die in the ring
this year.
Jacopucci, who was knocked out in the 12th round Wednesday night by
the 26-year-old Briton in a flurry of lefts and rights as he sagged toward the
canvas, died within 24hours of amateur middleweight boxer Salvador Pons,
19, in Spain, also after being knocked out.
Jacopucci's death brings to 329 the number of deaths of amateur and
professional boxers since World War II, according to records kept by The
Ring Boxing Encyclopedia.
